Mythic & The Black Library Announce Dark Storm Gathering Novel 50°
327w ago - Mythic and The Black Library, a division of Games Workshop, today announced Dark Storm Gathering, an original novel based on the critically acclaimed MMORPG, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR).

The second in a series of novels based on the hit massively multiplayer online role-playing game, Dark Storm Gathering will be available in all major bookstores and on the Black Library website in Spring 2009.

Dark Storm Gathering, by noted Black Library author Chris Wraight, provides a colorful and gripping account of the Realm vs. Realm battles that rage throughout WAR. In the novel, human and Elf adventurers are forced to form an uneasy alliance with the armies of the Empire to repel the forces of Chaos. Across the lands, the grim march of Tchar'zanek, dread Champion of the fell powers of Chaos, is underway.

Throughout the Empire of Man, the toll from plague and mutation continues to grow, and hope begins to fade. Only the intervention of the High Elves offers respite, but they are beset by foes of their own, the murderous Dark Elves.

When the prospect of treachery behind Imperial lines looms, four heroes based on careers in the game - Archmage, White Lion, Witch Hunter and Knight of the Blazing Sun - must work together to uncover the corruption before all is lost.
